A Challenging Pair of Socks

Just finishing up a pair of these for a woman who needed a sock that was 12.5" length from toe to heel. Had not done a sock this large ever and apparently she wears a size 15 shoe size...This was a challenge as I also had to increase the circumference of the leg and foot an inch...adding more stitches for rib pattern and making sure that the balance of the overall sock remained correct to what I designed it. Very long and difficult but the results were great. Also great was the Alpaca and Merino wool yarn I used.
